The pickaxe is a tool in Stardew Valley. It is one of five tools that the player starts with when starting a new game.

Uses

The pickaxe can be used on rocks to break them. Certain rocks have shards of crystals jutting out of them, which the pickaxe can be used on to get ores and gems. The pickaxe can also be used on tilled soil to return it to untilled soil.
